Studying the English language is not only fascinating but also enables students to develop a wide range of writing skills which are invaluable for both further study and future employment.
Accent, dialect, how language is changing and how we first learn language are only part of the subject. Students also have the opportunity to write creatively and to investigate topics of personal interest such as gender, technology and power. The very good results achieved by our students enable them to progress onto a wide range of university courses and careers.
Developing understanding of and the ability to use the English language creates versatile individuals and broadens career horizons.
General entry requirements for our A Levels include 5 GCSEs grade 5 or above, including English Language and Maths.
